Simple A/C Electrical question
For my 94 JGC I bought a Summit replacement A/C compressor. Most of the time it works fine, but occasionally it doesn't work at all. But if I wiggle the wires on the new compressor, the clutch engages and A/C is fine. Could be a loose connection, but I can't get it to not work by wiggling more.
Here's my question. The plus wire goes through a small white square plastic thing, attached to the outside of the compressor. What is that? A fusible link? A heat sensor? I'm tempted to cut it off and just connect the wires...
